I was taught at a young age that laughter is the best medicine.
And that may be an understatement.
Side note- as I type the word, 'laugh', I realize what an odd word it is. Seriously.
Some may consider it a problem, maybe.
I consider it a gift.
Another side note- I'm listening to the radio at work right now
those stupid commercials that put their own lyrics to popular songs?
it seems like every night I find myself in some type of laughing fit over the DUMBEST stuff ever.
i.e. Tim and I were unloading our dishwasher
I had the bottom end
and I'm shorter
therefore should have had the top end I guess
cause I had to put my end down first.
My arm width couldn't handle the task.
So I collapsed to the ground unable to hold the box.
I then began to imagine what I had looked like when it happened.
The image replayed over and over in my head and I lost it.
I laughed at the very moment I fell.
I laughed as I walked to the car.
I laughed when I got into the car.
I laughed in the car.
I laughed the whole way home.
Tim sat silent.
I think he only expects these laughing spells now.
Typing this I started laughing again.
I got it from my Grandpa and my dad.
My grandpa was known for his contagious laugh
He would sit there in his La-Z Boy just chucklin.
his whole body would move to his laugh.
My dad, the same.
Me, the same.
Being that I laugh so much, I somehow manage to laugh and speak at the same time.
I guess this isn't a normal thing.
I get made fun of for this constantly.
But I don't understand how you can stop laughing to make a statement.
How do you do it?
Even when I'm down,
the smallest thing can bring me right back.
So, let this be a lesson to you all.
Because it's probably the best thing ever created.
